The Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo said on Saturday Nigeria would not disintegrate despite its current challenges.

Nigeria has been torn apart by several challenges, including insecurity in many parts of the country.

Osinbajo, who stated this during his visit to the Emir of Katagum, Umar Farouk, in Bauchi State, said neither religion nor ethnicity would break up the country.

He said: “This is one occasion where you will find that our country is truly a united country and that nothing can separate this country, not ethnicity or religion or class.
